    This thread is finished as Bruticus was found thanks to a great board member.

    For anyone looking and viewing this message, eBay routinely has these for about $60 shipped or retailers online have them right now for $55 shipped.

    MJ you probably shouldn't pm the guy.

    I pm'd him about it yesterday. Price was $42.50. Today he bumped it to $60 for one.

    Thanks for the heads up. For $60 you can buy it on eBay and have it shipped from China. That's silly.

    Aside from that, I remember reading a really poor thread he made a couple of months ago about urbancollector.com. Definitely not messaging him as I don't support scalpers here.

    Ah, that's cute. A free bump from fordjuse. Thanks, for your appearance! With each post, you further cement your reputation as someone all members of TFW2005 should avoid completely.

    You seem confused and perhaps it needs to be repeated: I never ever intended to buy from you. Mostly because of your irrational behvavior in your thread about urbancollector.com, but also in part because you treat this site as if it your personal fee-free eBay. Your repeated posts here in my thread reinforce your unstable appearances which only work to your detriment.

    Go away, now.

    Hey ignore the DB. He makes it seem like he's the only one that has any Bruticus. I just got mine yesterday for $45. I'll PM you the info.

    His price is now $75. I had always thought that these boards were to help other fans to get what they needed without the markup. No offense to fordjuse but that price seems to be a little extreme. I'm sure he'll have better luck on Ebay though.

    Hopefully he's worked that bit of madness out of his system. I do, regrettably, feel a bit sorry for him.

    Anyhow, thanks for the link. These have been readily available for $45 plus shipping at online retailers or even $60 shipped on eBay (even now). I find it odd that sellers would push prices higher than that on a site like this.

    Uh, you aren't making very much sense. (English may be your second language so perhaps that is part of the problem.) Why would anyone buy from you, a scalper on a board for fans of Transformers, when they could buy from a reputable online retailer for less money?

    Anyhow, I bought Bruticus from a fellow fan for less than half of what you are quoting members. Please stop posting in this thread as it is finished.

    Why would you need six of them unless you are a scalper? Why would you want to "shove" that in the face of anyone, particularly when it provides evidence to support the perception that you are a scalper? Why would you be proud of that at all?

    You aren't making sense.

    I wanted (not needed) one and found one. This is done.

    Eh, the "urbancollector" thread happens to be one of the most unintentionally hilarious threads ever created on this board. You should be proud!

    Anyhow, I only brought it up as, coincidentally, someone mentioned that you have silly prices and insinuated that members should look elsewhere for their purchases. What this thread evolved into, with your able help, clearly affirmed that reputation.

    Amen. Glad MineralJane got one, and I forwarded this thread to every one of my friends in hopes of protecting them from similar situations.

    His line about supply and demand is how he sleeps at night. Total BS. Scalper is as scalper does. I'm also upset with the board members who bought from him. They are just fueling the scalper fire.

    Ah, I guess fordjuse finally realized that he was only hurting himself within this thread. I would hope that he would also change his ways in the Junkion Exchange, but that is probably too much to expect. (At least his posts are preserved in my replies so it doesn't look like I'm talking to myself!)
